Book of the Month – unlimited online access anniversary!

Twelve book covers of the books of the month on a green background
09 October 2020

It’s been just over a year since we launched our Book of the Month with unlimited access to the e-book and e-audio versions on BorrowBox, and what a year it’s been!

There’s been a fantastic selection of reads on offer, and we’re delighted so many library members have been reading them.

The 12 titles* have been downloaded over 5,000 times and the number of people regularly using our e-book and e-audio service has almost doubled!

And the most popular of the books? It was The Man Who Didn’t Call by Rosie Walsh, with 935 loans!

So, if you haven’t taken advantage of this great new service yet, look out each month for the featured Book of the Month title. Find out by following us on Facebook or Twitter or by subscribing to our newsletter.
